County Commission March 19, 2012
Commissioners McCulloh and Johnson present.
Eileen King, County Treasurer, informed the commission that her office will not be able to process motor vehicle or drivers’ license applications between May 1 and May 6. April 30 will be the last day on the current system. People will, however, be able to come in to make tax payments. The closure is because of a change to a new system which is being adopted statewide. It will replace the present mainframe system and eliminate some manual procedures and paperwork. Her office will be processing mail-in renewals on May 7, and renewals in person will begin again on May 8.
Jennifer Wilson announced the K-State Research and Extension Board Leadership series beginning in April. The goal is to help people who are on elected or appointed boards become more effective board members. Instruction will be at 10 different sites across the state and meet for four sessions. The cost is $25. Registration and information is available at www.ksre.ksu.edu/boardseries
Registration deadline is March 26.
Anne Smith, Director of ATA Bus announced two fixed routes beginning April 23. They will run east to west on the north side of the city, and the second route will run on the south side, also east to west. They both will come together at the KSU campus. Maps will be available soon. The current on-demand service will continue as usual. This new system will not receive any money from the city.
